If you enjoy working with children of all ages, you will find a challenging and rewarding career as a school counselor after graduating from the School Counseling program from Walsh University. School counselors today are called upon to do much more than career "guidance."


Key Features

School counselors:

  • Provide individual, group and crisis counseling
  • Develop prevention and intervention programs for "at risk" students
  • Assist learning disabled students
  • Facilitate connection to community resources for both students and parents 

The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), has granted accreditation to the following programs in Counseling and Human Development within the Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Walsh University: Mental Health Counseling (M.A. degree) and School Counseling (M.A. degree).

The School Counseling program from Walsh University does not operate on a strict cohort model and accommodates both full-time and part-time students. Most students work full-time while they are in the program and thus their student status (full-time vs part-time) may vary from semester to semester.

  • Counseling Adolescents
